February 1, 1930 - April 18, 2015 Joan C. Brazil, aged 85, passed away from natural causes in her Irvine, California, residence. Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, she spent her childhood years in Santa Monica, California, and graduated from Mills College in the Bay Area with a degree in Dance. From 1951 to 1970 she was married to Lionel Holton Brazil, DVM (dec.) and raised a family in Tulare, California, where Dr. Brazil ran a successful veterinary practice and dairy farm operation.

She was a longtime resident of Irvine and enjoyed bicycling and walking along its paths and trails, especially near the ocean. She was a dedicated member of Mariners Church in Irvine and is home at peace with the Lord.
